The week kicked off with a massive surprise. Rihanna is expecting! And of course she turned an average Monday into an exciting one by announcing her pregnancy in the coolest way possible: in low-rise jeans and a pink puffer that showed off her bump. Ugh, goals. But one thing that wasn't a surprise this week? We spotted yet another celeb in the weather-resistant boot trend that's equal parts cool and comfortable — and it's on major sale at Nordstrom.

Kate Hudson has been seen trekking around New York in winter-ready staples, and while she's usually rocking leggings or casual-cool clothes on the West Coast, the actress has seemingly adjusted to the brisk East Coast weather just fine. Long shackets, fluffy coats, and of course, impossibly practical combat boots are some of the essentials she packed on her trip to the Big Apple.

Combat boots are a popular shoe year-round, but come winter, they seem to crop up like it's nobody's business. Amal Clooney is also a fan of the utilitarian style, sometimes trading in her trusty black knee-highs for the lace-up option that's a bit more rugged and suitable for trekking through inches of snow and slush.

Hudson's boots have a shearling front and a chunky treaded sole, no doubt ensuring both warmth and durability. While the brand behind her exact pair is unknown, we do know that in the past, Hudson has worn lace-up styles from labels like Timberland and Danner.

Nordstrom has hundreds of combat boots on sale that would undoubtedly earn both Hudson's and Clooney's stamp of approval, like these platforms from Steve Madden with a cozy shearling detail and these classic Naturalizer booties that are lined with faux fur (and on sale for 51 percent off).
